Stoke College students are to be congratulated on their outstanding A Level results once again. To achieve 92% A* to C grades is a great achievement. That five students, including our Mark Wang Scholars, received 100% A* to A in Mathematics, deserves particular mention.
As the first cohort of Sixth Formers to sit A Level examinations since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, results day has come with a deep sense of anticipation for students and staff. Stoke College’s transition to online learning during the spring of 2020 was exemplary, and its continued academic commitment to each and every student has reaped these remarkable results.
Mr Jacob Dyer-Jones, Acting Head of Sixth Form commented, “These students have faced such unprecedented challenges and have shown admirable strength and resilience to get to this stage. The individual attention of expert staff in the uniquely nurturing small-class environment of Stoke College, together with the determination of our students, has produced these brilliant results.”
Top performing international student, Ailin, now looks forward to reading Education at the University of Durham. “I cannot thank the staff of Stoke College enough. Not only did they help me secure my university place at Durham, but they have inspired me to follow my dreams to study Education. I am absolutely thrilled.”
Principal, Dr Gareth Lloyd commented, “We are thrilled with this year’s A Level results. They are a testimony to the students’ diligence and commitment to intellectual endeavour, and of course reflect excellence in teaching. We wish all our Upper Sixth leavers every success as they embark upon their next exciting chapters.”
A few places remain for A Levels starting in September 2022. For entry to the school in 2023 and beyond, there will be an Open Evening on 14th September 2022. Stoke College offers a number of Mark Wang Scholarships for exceptional A Level candidates; the closing date for applications for 2023 is 31st October 2022.
